00:02:54--> 00:03:36

Bismillah was thought was salam ala Rasulillah. While early he also had been in wa salam we begin by mentioning the name of Allah subhanaw taala. With Allah's help, be able to speak with Allah's help, you'd be able to understand with Allah's help, both of us would be able to apply the good things there'll be mentioned in sha Allah. First of all, I'd like to start by asking Allah subhanho wa Taala to send a speedy and full recovery to Imam Omar Suleiman. May Allah subhanaw taala grant him as she felt that is urgent. That is quick. That is time that is fully available al Amin and may Allah grant cure to all our brothers and sisters around the world. Dr. Bill Alameen you know the

00:03:36--> 00:04:27

topic of tonight or this morning for you guys may be watching from the Philippines right now. It's like Federer time may Allah bless you and protect you is an incredibly important topic, which is regarding practicing what you preach. And if you allow me to start actually with something that shall not have to lay man has told me May Allah bless him. I was giving a session in Minneapolis, it was part of an M fest conference. And my session was regarding death, and how to be prepared for it, and how it's all about the ending. The action items that I mentioned, one of them where we should all start visiting graveyards. Outside funerals, just make it a habit that every now and then you go

00:04:27--> 00:05:00

to the graveyard. It will help you remember that as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and it will bring tears to our eyes. It will bring us the reminder of the afterlife. So I encourage the audience in Minneapolis. Make sure you visit the graveyards very often outside this funerals. When I finished my session and I was walking out of stage, I see she homeless of a man and I asked him for some feedback for the session. And he knew what he told me. He told me something that I remembering until

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

This moment that I pray to Allah to remind me of it till the day I meet him. Shri Rama told me imagine, make sure you do what you advised others to do. And he was specific. He said, You mentioned about visiting graveyard. So Matt did make sure you visit graveyards as well. And that was such a profound piece of advice and motivation to me that magic remember that? Yes, we preach. But we have to also put much effort into practicing what we preach. And subhanAllah I asked Allah to reward him, Mr. Solomon, because before I actually delivered this session, I went to the graveyard to go visit our brothers and sisters who passed away and we all know we shall return back to Allah subhanaw

00:05:45--> 00:06:23

taala. And May Allah's peace be upon those who passed away? Yeah, but I mean, practicing what we preach is one of the greatest indications of your sincerity and my sincerity. It is the one of the greatest things that exposes you, it shows your true colors, whether you're truthful or not, whether you're a sincere or a hypocrite, may Allah protect a seller but I mean, you know what, also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a man from the Arab, a Bedouin, he came to the Prophet and he believed in him, this is authentic narration and he followed him. Then he says to the Prophet, who had dramatic yellow, so Allah, I want to integrate with you. So the province along with it, he was Selim

00:06:23--> 00:07:06

told the people to take care of him. And in one time, there was a battle that took place. And after the battle was completed, and the Muslims were victorious, people had portions the spoils of war given to the soldiers. So let's say someone gets a sword, and a helmet or whatever the case is, as the war gains came in. So this man who accepted Islam from the era of the Bedouins, he said, Here, it was set down here you go, this is your winning items because of the battle. So the man said, What is this for? I didn't, I didn't, that's not what I'm looking for. So he went to the products of a lot he was sending to the house Roma, why am I getting all these items for? So the Prophet says, How

00:07:06--> 00:07:50

do you smoke? You know, this is, this is the fair division of the war spoils. You deserve it, you worked hard. So the man tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it says, Not Allah, the tobacco took your Rasul Allah, I did not believe in you. I did not follow you. Just to get some of the dunya in the war games. That's not what I want. I followed you either. And ormia ADA Hoonah I follow you so I can get shot right here and he pointed his finger. Well, I shall eat healthy. I want to get shot right here and die for a mood of authorial Jana Allahu Akbar, you're also this is what I'm looking for, to give up my life for Allah subhanho wa taala. And in return, I want Allah to give me

00:07:50--> 00:08:38

genuine Allahu Akbar. Brothers and sisters, you know what the Prophet told him some wise? He said to him for words and I want you in sha Allah to remember that these words. He said to him in thus blocking law. Yes, Doc, one more time. In Deus doc, Allah. Yes, Doc. He told him if you are truthful with what you said, if you really mean what you want, then Allah will be truthful to you, meaning Allah will fulfill your dreams. If you're sincere, you want to get shot right here and die for the sake of Allah. Allah will grant you what you're looking for. These sets fella kalila some time has passed by another battle took place. And this Arabi does that do it. Join the army. Allahu Akbar.

00:08:39--> 00:09:26

And guess what happened when the battle was pretty much almost completed? And you're seeing those who passed away? Who did they find that they found that Arabi? And guess what? pumila illan Nabhi he was carried to the prophets of Allah, Allah. He was sending that dead brother to the Prophet. I'm looking at him. And there's an arrow that shot right here. So the Prophet says a Hua Hua. Is this the brother that was pointing here about I want to die for the sake of Allah? And he pointed is that the same one who wants him? So they said, Yes, you're also Allah. So the Prophet said, Sada Kola sadaqa. He was truthful with Allah. He meant it. He practiced what he sought. And Allah gave him

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

what you wanted Allahu Akbar. May Allah make a sincere era but I mean, and you know what's amazing, not just He died for the sake of Allah and he was shot exactly where he pointed, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shrouded him with prophets clothing Island, his Salatu was Salam. Then he placed him and then he prayed on him. And look at what the Prophet said Allah Houma. Oh Allah, this man had abduct your servant, call Raja mohajir and visa vie Eric, he left and immigrated for your sake for haughtiness Shahida, and he died as a martyr.

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

I'd Shahidan eidetic and I'm a witness to that. Yeah, Allah, Allahu Akbar, something for us to truly appreciate. Outside Islamic context, they sometimes they tell you is the law of attraction, right? You think of something so much you work towards something so much, then you gain what you're working towards. But in dunya, you might not always physically achieve it. But what's amazing Allah will grant it to you, even if you don't get it in dunya what what do I mean? The guy who pointed here I want to get shot here for the sake of Allah and die, he might have died on his bed, but Allah would possibly reward him as if he died for the sake of Allah and that's why we love this Deen so much.

00:10:41--> 00:11:31

And you see more and more examples of people and you might ask me, How do I know if I'm truthful with my intention? How do I know that I'm really walking the talk and practicing what I preach. I will get to that. But let me share with you one more thing about their own. Bla bla bla one checkup this. He used to make a very famous dua he used to sing honorable habra Dylon, Allahumma or zucchini shahada Tentree sabich Or Allah make me a martyr. Make me die for your sake yeah Allah on your path. Not just that what Jaiden mo te fi Bella de or silica Sol Allah Azza and make me die in the city of your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have son was not really comprehending the DUA she even told

00:11:31--> 00:12:21

her dad and Nikon ohada Father How can it be possible that you die as a martyr in Medina because the top of the line who eventually when the Muslims were you know conquering other areas and so on There were not many Muslim non met not many non Muslims in Medina pretty much Medina was all Muslims, except like one guy or so. So how can you be a martyr like who's gonna come all the way to Medina and kill you in Medina and your diamond like how? So he says Mr. de la in sha Allah, Allahu Akbar, oh my God, Allah, Allah says, if Allah wants it to happen, Allah will make it possible. And indeed, Omar is dua to Allah and to die as a martyr in the city of the Prophet did actually take place when

00:12:21--> 00:13:00

he was praying Fajr probably Allah and then he was stabbed by one of the hypocrites, who was what standing in Salah behind Ahmad lung and he was almost stabbed. I don't know the law, I know which eventually he passed away as a martyr. May Allah allow us to see him in genealogical Alameen. Brothers and sisters, one of the things to tell us whether we are genuine or not, whether we will be really able to go full force into practicing what we preach or not, is certain indications in life and I'll give you one example. And then you use this example and you apply it throughout your life to know your true colors.

00:13:01--> 00:13:38

When there's an example like a fundraise a fundraising event, they're trying to fundraise to help expand the masjid or sponsor some orphans or help a very needy family. Sometimes the one doing the fundraiser, he asks the people who can be the one who donates our first $10,000 Yellowbird Smilla first $10,000 This is an example right? You can feel free to donate 10,000 I might stop you. But as an example, who here is able to donate $10,000 Now we might have some wonderful people may Allah grant you all gender we have Khadija Abba Isha has sent

00:13:39--> 00:14:14

all of you wonderful people. All right. You may say, Allah Hi, brother magic, you know, if I had $10,000? I would give it? I really would. But you know, I don't have it. Okay, how do you know? If you really would have given $10,000? If you had it? How, what do you say feel free to type in the chat box? This is very important. Honestly, this is incredibly important. can't emphasize enough. How can you know if you would have 10,000 that you would have actually donated a town, but you don't have it? How can I know? What do you guys think?

00:14:17--> 00:14:59

Okay, fantastic. One of one of the people saying is that I will give whatever I can. And that's exactly one of the main indications. This is very important. You give how much you can at the moment, okay, what's your capacity? You cannot do $10,000 How much can you do? Oh my brother, I can do 100 give you 100? Yes, the 100 is one of the biggest evidence that you would have in sha Allah given 10,000 If you had it. There's another sign. What's the other sign? Number one, you give your capacity in your heart, you're very accenting Allah Yeah, cool. Fantastic. Jakob said you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

Allah help me excellent Jaco. So number one you give to what you can your capacity. Number two sign that you're sincere is that you will make dua to Allah to facilitate that for you. And number three

00:15:16--> 00:15:24

you actually feel a bit of pain and sadness that you cannot give the 10,000

00:15:25--> 00:16:05

Did you hear that? You feel a little bit of sadness and pain, that you're not able to really give the 10,001 time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam check this out Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went through one of the most difficult battles in the entire Sierra of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. It is so difficult that even Allah said, is the hour of hardship Allah Akbar, what battle is that? What battle is that? One of the longest, the toughest against a large army, in the severest of weathers. What battle was that?

00:16:07--> 00:16:39

And it's a four destination. Hmm. Excellent, Mashallah. It's the Battle of Tabuk, the Battle of Tabuk. So this battle was so tough, more all men are obligated to go that are capable. And they had to go through valleys and climb mountains and it was the heat of the sun of Arabia and summer like this was so tough. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says the following line reading. He tells us a harbor while they're traveling, sweating, exhausted,

00:16:40--> 00:16:48

and something we have never seen of difficulty ever before battle wise physically. The prophet tells him so Allah Azza LOM

00:16:49--> 00:16:53

there are men and there are people in Medina

00:16:54--> 00:16:58

you guys do not go up a mountain or down a valley

00:17:00--> 00:17:19

except that they get the same reward as you guys. Excuse me. What what they in their houses under the shade in their comfort of their home in Medina, they get the exact same reward as you who's traveling 1000 kilometers or so.

00:17:20--> 00:17:36

So the province of Allah who Allison is elaborating and he says, Habitat homeowner, other they really wanted to come. They really wanted to give their all but they had no means to give. So due to their sincere intentions,

00:17:37--> 00:18:26

Allah will reward them as if they traveled and look to what Allah says in the Quran reading. I will be letting the shaytaan rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim while I Lavina either tell Kelly Mila whom? Tala Ji Duma Camino Kamali? To one Lao? You know whom Delphine Domina demaree has an L? Yeah, do do my young own. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told these people that I don't have a right for you to this battle. These people were poor, they didn't have their own right. And they couldn't share it with others because they reached capacity. So the Prophet says, There's nothing I can help you with. Allah says they turn their back not against the prophet that they had to

00:18:26--> 00:19:11

eventually go. And they were crying. Why? Because they're so sad that there was nothing that they could have actually provided. Allahu Akbar. So remember, this is important to us, that we want to feel sad when we see the news of our brothers and sisters suffering across the world. And you really want to help you feel helpless, that there's nothing you really can do. But you feel sad, that's a good sign. Number two you make dua to Allah Subhan Allah to Allah to make it possible to change for the situation with people. Number three, you go as far as you humanly can possibly go to make that change. And may Allah grant us all sincerity out of Bill. I mean, there's a wonderful Sahabi His

00:19:11--> 00:19:59

name is Anna Sebnem mother, Radi Allahu Allah. And incident a mother was a companion that did not attend the Battle of better and Battle of better the way it was done, that people did not really get prepared for it. So the ones that did not show up, they were not rebuked, or thought bad about because whether it was different, it was like quickly, spontaneous, unlike 100 100, etc. So and I said in another one, he missed better. The battle he told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to Dr rasool Allah. I'm gonna show you and show ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala what I got in the next battle because he was sad he missed the better, is like layer on layer on

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

Lahoma last night I will show Allah I will do of sacrifice and doing everything I can to raise La ilaha illAllah.

00:20:08--> 00:21:00

Then after better, the next major battle was actually the Battle of God. Then Anacin the mother was participating in this battle. At one point the Muslims were actually getting defeated so bad, so much to the extent that the announcement was made, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has passed away in that Illa who are in that lineage. John rasool Allah has passed away. So many, many of the Sahaba either stopped or dropped the weapons and were like shocked. Others went back to Medina to regroup. Think of plan B. But hardly anyone remained fighting hardly anyone. So andasibe Another continue to fight when the Muslims many of them are retreating. So one of the Sahaba a grand

00:21:00--> 00:21:55

Sahabi he tells Ennis yeah Anis where in the world are you going? Where are you going? So then NS tell sad Radi Allahu Allah and he says I'm going to fight and die upon what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam died upon they don't know it was a false news. But this was NSA saying no I want to continue fighting then sad said I could not do what NS in another was doing. I couldn't so actually sad left. And it's not kept going. I know what you said Allahumma in the actor, the relay came in Masana Aha, Hola, US hub. Oh Allah. I apologize to you for what the companions are doing. And he says what a Bravo a Laker and here Allah, I am free. I seek your help and refuge I got nothing to do

00:21:55--> 00:22:52

with what these people the mushy kina disbelievers are doing. And he continued to march forward and fight the kuffaar of Croatia the battle of words. Brothers and sisters. You know what he said right before he completely went left the people. He told sad, sad will lie. I smell. I smell Jana. Next to mountain ahead. Well, look, I smell it. Or another I smell it. Yeah, Sad. Sad was impressed. But still he retreated and NS went forward to go fight them shakin when the battle ended. And both sides kind of settled. They have to go see those who passed away. And they found a man right next to God has over 88 to zero wounds, stabs and strikes. His body was in such a bad shape that the Sahaba

00:22:52--> 00:23:00

could not recognize Who is this man. That's how bad the situation was his face his body can no longer be recognized.

00:23:01--> 00:23:06

Then our respected sister, she passes and she sees him wearing a ring.

00:23:07--> 00:23:57

And his sister said this is the hand of my brother. And who was that man? It was NS Ibn another Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. He told the people he told the Rasul Allah said, Allah, I will show Allah what I will do. And indeed, he showed Allah, His prophets, Allah, Allah and all of us. What does it mean to walk the talk? What does it mean to practice what you preach? Then Allah revealed a beautiful verse, Allah says, means meaning Reja alone, Sada boom ma de la jai lai, Allah says from the believers, there are real men, real people who are truthful with what they promised Allah subhanho wa taala. And it's believed that this day was revealed to him and this is for you and me to

00:23:57--> 00:24:39

realize how much Allah is making our life easy. Well, Allahu Allah is making our life so easy. You may try to study for a test. And you really are studying and you attend your classes, you do your assignments, but when the final comes, the examination kicks in. You don't do too well. You get an F, you get a failing grade. And the people will judge you based on what you have done. And that's in a way fair as human beings. I judge you based on what you say, and what you do. And I tried to think well of your heart, but I don't judge your intention. Inshallah. What's amazing about Allah Jalla Jalla Allah to Allah, if you studied,

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

you tried your best. You wanted to be a physician, but you worked so hard, but your grades did not allow you. Allah will Insha Allah, reward you as if you graduated. reward you as if you practice physician for years helping the people Allahu Akbar.

00:25:00--> 00:25:54

But what you and I need to do is be honest, is to be truthful with Allah subhanho wa taala. And you got to remember that truthfulness has signs of it, you make dua to Allah of it, you go as far as you can have it, there's a little bit of pain and push and motivation to go to the level that you really want to achieve. So I pray to ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to bless you all, and make you and I have the people are able to practice what we preach. And I pray to Allah, that the class that you're taking, that the speech that I'm given I'm giving will be an excuse for us to go to Jana, and not an excuse against us to go to hellfire Yarra, but I mean, may Allah bless you and protect you, or pass like

00:25:54--> 00:25:59

inshallah back to sister Hudson, for perhaps any questions or comments in Charlotte.

00:26:00--> 00:26:02

Just like a love affair doctor, the US

00:26:05--> 00:26:29

manager it's a pleasure mashallah to have you connect with so many different examples in the audience taking examples from this era, mashallah, that was incredibly beneficial. I saw some questions pop up here. I'm going to try to scroll back and do my best to capture them inshallah. So one question was, what should you do if you have bad thoughts that can be insincere and you want to realign your intentions? How can you ensure that your intentions are solely for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.

00:26:30--> 00:26:34

Excellent, excellent, you know, Mister with some good news.

00:26:35--> 00:27:24

The fact that that person is asking and is concerned about their intention is a sign in sha Allah that you have a good intention. One more time Okay, one more time. Being concerned about your level of sincerity is a sign of sincerity Inshallah, as with our teachers, teachers, and not caring about intentions and not even bothering or putting effort or like, completely thinking it's meaningless or whatever the case is, is a sign of insincerity. May Allah protect the sale of blood, I mean, but keep note of something. Yes, be concerned about your intention. But I want you to be aware of not exaggerating the fear. What do I mean with exaggerating the fear and here I'll give you a sign. When

00:27:24--> 00:28:09

you have the intention or where they might sincere or not being balanced? That's fine. But exaggerating means you stop the action below aqua, Sr. Why did you stop doing this good deed? Why did you stop volunteering? Why did you stop posting on social media, a hadith or something, for example. And as I say, like an artist, my intentions are no you're going to watch out. Don't let your concern about your intention, reach a point of you stopping of doing the good deed. That's something to keep in mind. Inshallah. In addition, one of the other signs of hope of being able to have a sincere intention is to focus on Allah subhanaw taala as reward. I remember I attended a

00:28:09--> 00:28:17

conference and a man said a line this was over 10 years ago, Allah, that's 15 years ago. But that line that he said, It's remarkable line.

00:28:19--> 00:28:24

He said, we should aim to gain the thanks of Allah.

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

Then he added,

00:28:28--> 00:29:08

take the thanks of people. As a bonus, you do not aim to get the people's appreciation. Don't let that be your goal. Oh, thank you, brother man for the lecture. Thank you. So and so for attending? Dona WA, we should thank people, there's no doubt. But if they do, thank you take it as a bonus, don't take it as something you should expect. Allahu Akbar. So that's one of the things to help you focus towards being sincere for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And realize, as you know, Shamar beautifully translates it. I'll try to remember though he translated it. He said, the heart The heart of the person that you're trying to impress? I'm not saying that one was asked that question

00:29:08--> 00:29:35

is like doing that but the the concept, the heart of the person you are trying to impress is under the control of the one that you're disobeying because our hearts is in the control of Allah subhanaw taala so should not aim to please someone when their heart is already under Allah's control. So with these points, inshallah will help us be sincere and focused. May Allah make it easy for all of us Yarrow? Excellent. Amenia. Rob,

00:29:36--> 00:29:55

I see a couple of off topic questions. So I will remind everyone that the q&a is specific to the topics of hypocrisy and belief and practicing what you preach in sha Allah. I saw someone question that was asking how to execute. We've learned so much Jeff, I'll say this, like how do you if you were to summarize one or two action points that someone should kind of focus on coming out of this talk? What should that be?

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

Okay, okay, few points.

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

Number one, aim very, very, very high. Aim so high to the extent that some people may laugh at you if you tell them what you aim for them. I know you don't have to be too close to these people, but that's something to keep in mind. Also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, either sell to Allah, if you were to ask Allah for Jana, for saloon, Theodosian Allah, when you ask Allah for Paradise, ask Allah for the highest level, keeping in mind you and I do not deserve the lowest level engine. We do not deserve it due to our actions. The prophets of our Salam said that he says no one goes to Jannah due to their actions. So the people said, not even new Yasser Allah. He says, Well,

00:30:44--> 00:31:28

no, not even Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam deeds and actions qualify intergender he says of Allah and said I'm ill and yet Allah Madani Allahu Akbar, Rama Tamino of analysts, Allah showers with his mercy. So you aim as high as you possibly can. And you go as far as you can, with your actions, you see that so the intention is as high as you can, the action you go as far as you can. We have another thing. Also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a man came to him to the masala I love you so much. And I'm concerned I will not be with you in Ghana, you will be at a level above me. You will be here. I'll be here. I want to be with you also. I'm so concerned than the Prophet

00:31:28--> 00:31:58

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and more Omar man had, you will be with whom you love Allah you will be with whom you love. So this comes to show you if you truly love the prophets of Allah, Allah was a new aim to be his neighbor. But how do you get there? Well, now you add step to the actions you walk the talk as much as you possibly can. And Allah will reward you for what you've done and for what you intended. And we all love lots of syrup. I mean, you probably mean

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

someone else is asking

00:32:02--> 00:32:15

a lot the question already. Okay, let me just someone else was asking actually, just previously is how do you action what you learn if your primary aim high and kind of aim for the best, but people don't believe in your trustee or your intentions? What do you do in that situation?

00:32:16--> 00:32:27

When it comes to people believing your intentions or trusting your intentions, there's two folds to it. One of them from my end, let's say I want to do something and people are like, Are you sure you that's why you're doing it?

00:32:29--> 00:33:05

One thing to think of, Am I really doing the work? Right? So people are criticizing me? If the ones criticizing me are people that are dear to me, people that I think they love me, I will take their criticism seriously. But on the other side, no one in the world is allowed to judge intentions. Not a single human being on Earth is allowed to judge the intentions why intentions are in the heart and no one has access to it except Allah.

00:33:06--> 00:33:28

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There was a man that came to him an authentic narration. He said Dr. Rasool Allah, when they didn't even say to you says you are Mohammed, you're not fair. Okay, you got to fear God. You're not fair. Can you imagine someone saying that the prophets Allah. So the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam tells this man,

00:33:29--> 00:34:20

if I don't fear Allah, then who will like I should be the one who is the most God fearing. So this man was so rude to the Prophet. He accused the prophesy sided limit Can you imagine? So who heard this Khalid in invalid? So hard when it says here Rasul Allah make me get rid of this hypocrite? Let's just finish him this rude Nan. So the prophets of Allah Allah tells Harlequin only ready for this. It says le Allah who usually you heard, he might be someone who's who prays. He might be one of us, you know believers. So Khalid tells the Promise of Allah Selim Jana, so Allah, how many people pray outward, but in their heart, they don't care about Allah. Oh my goodness, how many

00:34:20--> 00:34:30

people praying outwardly but inward? They don't care about Allah and He don't even like Salah nothing just for the sake of people they're praying.

00:34:31--> 00:34:59

So the prophet tells Khalid in Neelam Omar, I am I was not commanded. Yeah, harlot. I was not commanded to open people's chests, and seek their intentions and judge it. I was not commanded. I am commanded to judge based on what I see and what I hear Subhanallah so from both sides, be careful, obviously, when people advise you, maybe Donald Trump talking about your actions, you know, step up your game. See what

00:35:00--> 00:35:31

They're coming from but at the same time they and you and me and all of us should not be judging intentions. And that's something to keep in mind, masha Allah, may Allah bless awesomesauce. Just like our check, I see another really important question. I think we'll end on that because it's a big one. But I do see that mashallah many of you have joined us since we began, such as I go out there for being with us for today's webinar on practicing what you preach. Of course, this is sponsored by and made available to you because of the efforts of Sheikh Omar cinnamon in his faith or fake online course that's available to register. Now, the link and all the details are there in

00:35:31--> 00:36:00

the description. And there was a surprising little bonus that I'll tell you guys about at the end, so stick around at the end. But the question, Jeff imagined that I see, I'll summarize it a little bit is what if you witness maybe a sign of hypocrisy in a community leader or someone who is of influence within the community, and you'll see that their outward kind of personality and what they're projecting is very different from what they're doing at home or within their private circles? What is the proper approach to approach to have maybe publicly and even internally? How do you kind of conceptualize that?

00:36:01--> 00:36:04

That's, that's an incredible question. And

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

you know, subhanAllah,

00:36:08--> 00:36:33

the ones who may know this are the ones who are close to that individual. So the question once again, someone is working, LS is doing very good things outward. But inside the house, they're a beast inside the house. No one can even say salam and sit next to them, but outside the Shang smiles and hugs and love and care. Now, obviously, this is very alarming.

00:36:34--> 00:37:25

And if someone does notice that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam tells us at Dino Naziha, this religion is all about improving one another. It's all about advising yourself, through the Quran, through the prophetic statements, then the Prophet ends by saying, you advise the people and the leadership. So the example given about the leadership, there should be someone that would to advise that person, I advise someone who knows him, Well, someone that has a connection, someone that is educated about the situation, someone who knows why easy like the outside or why he's like that insight, and be able to advise them. And that's something that is responsibility to the people

00:37:25--> 00:38:02

around them. We should not be actually silent towards that. We advise the person that you know what, I see you doing this, you're doing that maybe want to adjust, maybe spend more time with family, remind him of hope, remind them of fear. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to us, the best one amongst us, he knows the best one in this chat. He knows the best one watching is the one who's best to their wife, as brother's best one is best to their spouse. And if you're not married, yet, that one was best for their family, their parents, right? This is what your true colors really appear. So if you're able to master that part, and shortly we'll be able to master the

00:38:02--> 00:38:41

public it's the private so ask also Panatela to remind myself that Allah to help me remember and help you remember to be very good inside the house because if you're mastering this by Allah, then outside world will be Allah easier. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us and greatest the highest levels in Ghana you are blind I mean, and may Allah make it any make the people around him also a reflection of how he should be doing you know what I mean? Sometimes you want to change someone let's say I want to change someone to the better. The best way for me to help you become better is by me doing what I'm telling you to do. Or why don't why you're not nice in the house why you're so

00:38:41--> 00:39:19

nice outside but you're rude in the house. Are you saying that how are you? Are you nice in the house in addition to outside just keep that in mind as that was one of the steps in changing people is you become the action that you're preaching for others to achieve. May Allah bless you. I mean, everybody I mean, now I see people getting excited putting in their opinions and their questions and whatnot but I want to be respectful of everyone's time inshallah as well. So we will save this inshallah for the questions that come in from the class in your student portal. Is that come a locker, Chef magic for being with us honestly, it's always a treat to have you on our platform, but

00:39:19--> 00:39:28

especially so one where that time of need. I'm humbled Allah, it's been such a perfect match to this topic such as Aquila, for making time for us today. It's just one less thing just

00:39:29--> 00:39:59

you know, I just want to I know you guys have heard about the class faith or fake talking about belief and about hypocrisy. And I cannot recommend this class enough. Because of its importance. We know for a fact that the lowest place in hell is for hypocrites. The lowest place Allah says in El Mundo, Filipina thedata Killa s Fatima na. The hypocrites are the lowest spot in hell and people also have

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

About the Allahu Anhu were terrified that they are of the hypocrites. So if the Sahaba were scared to be of the hypocrites, then what about the generations that came after that we too should be concerned. And the best way to save you from hypocrisy is to learn about it, and to learn how to avoid it. And we think Allah subhanho wa taala. And then we think all the people that I know of Institute Imam, I want to say man, the team that helped make this class possible for us. So this is an important challah class, may Allah protect us from hypocrisy, and Niala increases in faith and Amen, which was luck, Malarkey, I think you have. So for your time and effort, thank you so much. I

00:40:43--> 00:40:57
